    Good for him! :)

    Happy for him. Just wish the show didn’t duplicate the name of the awesome web series ‘Venice.’

  5. Colleen says:

    Yea for Michael, hope this does get picked up.

    Morgen – I know defending the honor is important, but you know the official imdb listing for that is “Venice the Series” right? while similar, it doesn’t duplicate.

    Congrats to Michael Graziadei! He was always my favorite younger actor on the Y&R and I will watch this to support him!
